Dear Brothers,

can you pleas explain Who are the Eight Mothers and "where They are" in Gnostic/Kabbalah (on the Tree of Life etc.)?

citation:
"SAPTA MATRUKA : Matrikas (Matrika singular, Sanskrit: mātṝkā, मातृका "mother";), also called Matara (Sanskrit: mātaraḥ plural, मातरः) and Matri (mātṛ, मातृ singular), is a group of Hindu goddesses who are always depicted together.
Since they are usually depicted as a heptad, they are called Saptamatrika(s) (Sanskrit: saptamātṝkāh, सप्तमातृका:, "seven mothers";): Brahmani, Vaishnavi, Maheshvari, Indrani, Kaumari, Varahi, Chamunda and Narasimhi. However, they may sometimes be eight (Ashtamatrika(s): ashtamātṝkāh, अष्टमातृका:, "eight mothers";).
Whereas in South India, Saptamatrika worship is prevalent, the Ashtamatrika are venerated in Nepal."

Study this:

"If thou canst not make thine own self what thou desireth, how shalt thou be able to fashion another to thine own liking. We are ready to see others made perfect, and yet we do not amend our own shortcomings."
